Christmas Baby is 96

Gray hairs seem to my fancy like the soft light of the moon, silvering over the evening of life.- Jean Paul

Mom was born on Christmas day, 1919.
Today she’s celebrating her 96th birthday!
That translates to 35,064 days and 35,064 nights on this planet.
There have been exactly 1,187 full moons since she was born.

How many of them have you seen?

As fate would have it, mom will have a full moon shining over her on her birthday! The last Christmas full moon was in 1977. The next one will be in 2034.

Happy birthday, mom!

Here’s to many more full moons coming your way!

    • I understand your mom perfectly. I’m 90 and I don’t want my friends, family or Melissa to know I’m that old. We are doing great and looking forward to catching our limit when this damn Old Man Winter decides to move on! Hope all is well in your world! Cheers to a happy New Year!
